This Aged version of the acclaimed D-18 Authentic 1939 includes all of the goodness that fans have come to know with Martin’s Authentic Series instruments, including traditional hide glue construction and hand-scalloped X bracing. Plus, Martin has given it's Adirondack spruce top the Vintage Tone System (VTS) treatment to age the wood to replicate the sound of a vintage Martin. But they didn't stop there.
